I lost to her in battle, twice.
We had a carnival that night and she was in the other team.
It was raining and it was night time.
My team won the challenge.
We jumped in joy to celebrate of victory.
As we were jumping, she saw me.
Challenged me once again.
Maybe it was the darkness that gave me the courage.
Though I wasn’t ready, I took up her challenge.
My mind was working at almost 10 times it normal battle mode capacity.
On the night of the carnival, I somehow knew how I was going to defeat her.
We had to race through an obstacle course and then head to the 25th floor to get a necklace.
Only on the 25th floor were we allowed to begin killing mode.
Killing mode means fight till one is down and the last one standing heads to the finish with the necklace to claim victory.
This time around, I changed the way I went up.
Instead of rushing up the lift, like we always do, I took some stuff up with me.
There was no rule in the books that say we couldn’t.
That was the first step of change I had to defeat her.
I gave her a couple extra time to get ahead but this time when she made her move I would be ready.
I stopped at level 23, made my way up but I was surprise I didn’t see her.
After grabbing whole of the necklace, I head back down.
I didn’t just race down, I wanted to go up, face her.
And so I did.
Somehow she read my mind and waited for me.
But she didn’t read deep enough.
We fought, I kicked her to the side.
Press the button, blocked her exit.
No I didn’t pin her down till I was the last one standing, I just changed the way we fought and that’s how I won….
